Supergirl's world has gotten bigger since the show's move to The CW for Season 2. Kara's teamed up with her famous cousin Clark to battle evil, met and fallen for Mon-El, started a friendship with Lena Luthor, and battled Lena's mom Lillian, among other things. Now that Season 2 has come to an end, let's take a look at what we can expect from the next round of Kryptonian action in Season 3.
Is Supergirl Renewed For Season 3?
Luckily for Supergirl fans everywhere, we don't have to wait to see if we'll get more adventures in the coming TV season. Back in early January, Supergirl was renewed for Season 3 along with six other shows on The CW, including Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. So, not only will we get to see at least one more season of Supergirl, but The CW has made sure that its entire Arrow-verse will remain intact for at least the 2017-2018 television season.
When Will Supergirl Season 3 Start?
For a while, we had no idea when Season 3 would kick off, and we could only guess at the next time we'd get to see Kara and co in action on the small screen. Given that Season 1 of Supergirl kicked off on October 26 and Season 2 of the superhero show began on October 10, the odds were pretty good that we'd seen another October premiere. Now, we finally know for sure. Supergirl Season 3 will debut on Monday, October 9 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
What's The Story Of Supergirl Season 3?
Season 2 ended with the death of Queen Rhea of Daxam after Kara and the D.E.O. released so much lead into the atmosphere that Earth was inhospitable for any Daxamites, so we can be pretty confident that the Daxamite threat is done for the time being. Lillian Luthor is still around, and everything we've seen of the Luthor ladies (and heard about Lex) indicates that Lillian won't give up on her cause. The end of Season 3 revealed to our heroes that President Olivia Marsdin (played by Lynda Carter) is actually an alien; if she comes back, there will probably be some stories to be told about her deception to the American people. Throw in Mon-El's departure, and the Season 2 status quo will likely be changed in some big ways for Season 3.
Meanwhile, a large focus of Season 2 was on the personal lives of Kara and her friends and family, and we can get into how things might shake out for them in Season 3 on the next few pages.
